Tea in the Garden

Much laughter and cheery gossip goes around the table this day.

Tea cups clatter.

Scones are slathered with clotted cream.

Lady Vee's story causes much interest.

Voices are hushed.

...and so at this auspicious occasion, Lady J.K. proceeded to tell Lady Ann that she is not immune to our dashing Mr. Darcy!

Smiles and knowing looks.

  18. I like Longbourn Wedding Tea. Champagne and rose petals, sweet smelling and taste.

    The Casual Vacancy has adult themes so I may read the book since I'm of age. But I'm not crazy about it since it's not Harry Potter.


  19. I would love to try Mr. Darcy. I would definitely read The casual Vacancy.


  20. Sweet Jane and I do planing on reading Casual Vacancy
